Good skater as well, can be kind of a In Your Face type of player if he's on. Think a more skilled version of Sean Avery minus the whole drama.

The risk with him is, you can't be sure if he's coming to NA, but if he's available late in the 3rd round, I'd be willing to gamble one of our picks.

I don't see it happening though bc the NYR organization drafted NA- & SWE-heavy recently (and successfully so).
I think the Rangers would pass on him. Good player, but has all those "if" factors like being small and not coming to NA. I'd rather use our 3rds for something else.
